Abstracts are now being accepted focusing on the events of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
The first-author rule is relaxed for the late-breaking sessions; authors may submit another abstract to the late-breaking sessions even if they also submitted an abstract for the August deadline.
Abstract Submission Deadline: 31 October 2017, 11:59 ET
This session, potentially organized as multiple sessions, seeks a wide breadth of contributions focusing on the events of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, including crowdsourced data and social media in disaster response; policy implications; high resolution remote sensing; flooding and infrastructure damage; impacts on the environment and human health; changing coastal landscapes; oceanographic, atmospheric, and climatic factors contributing to the storm; data access and assimilation; HPC and cloud computing for real-time analysis.
